We will collect the Christmas Joy Special Offering on Christmas Eve as we have done for many, many years now. This special offering supports our past, present, and future leaders – equally through the assistance program of the Board of Pensions – which helps current and past church workers and their families in times of critical financial need; and also financial gifts as scholarships for students attending Presbyterian-related schools and colleges, in support of communities of color, such as Stillman College in Tuscaloosa. God has blessed the Church with incredible leadership in every time and place, but those leaders often need to be supported by their communities as well. This Offering addresses the support needed by some of our leaders, including supporting leadership development for communities of color, and providing support for Presbyterian church workers in their time of need. Please consider a gift to the Joy offering on Christmas Eve this year.
